Todo magnifico, hermoso, delicioso, lo unico que no nos gustó es que cuando escogimos el vino tinto se refirió a nosotros con mala palabra diciendo” no mames, pide algo mejor, de mejor calidad” fueron 4 veces las que dijo “no mames”
La palabra “no mames” es extra corriente para un mesero y mas el que recomienda vinos, en un restaurante de NY de esta calidad como il mulino no se trata ni se dice asi a los comensales
Saludos

I’ve been a number of times. The food and service remained stable. We weren’t offered the end-of-meal grappa as we always were previously but other than that there were no disappointments!

We had a spectacular experience at Il Mulino. Had a great table. Staff was amazing. Three special appetizer items when we sat down. The Parmesan was amazing. We had the mushroom risotto and chicken parmigiana. Bother we’re terrific. Our desserts we terrific too. It was a perfectly prepared meal and attentive service.

The food is not good and the service is bad too (George was nice). Everyone else was rude. Best part of the meal was the bread. The bolognese was ok. Really disappointed overall. Take your money to cipriani or Scarpetta.

Shared the clams, Caesar salad, bucatini and ribeye with my husband. I bit into shell pieces with two of the four clams I ate. The Caesar salad looked like it came from a pre-mixed bag. The bucatini was too salty. And the steak was slightly over cooked—though well seasoned. The mashed potatoes were tasty but nothing special. I would not come here again nor would I recommend it to anyone—especially given the fact that there are so many Italian restaurants in NYC.

This restaurant has elegant, delicious Italian food that is fresh and extraordinary. I enjoyed lobster out of the shell on pasta that was truly a decadent treat. The service is attentive and professional. It is expensive, but when you want an extravagant meal that is worth every penny, definitely eat here.

Takes itself too seriously and it's over-rated in all categories. Definitely not Italian --they can't even get the menu items (gender, plural or singular) correctly. For example, -- news flash: it's Vini Rossi, NOT Vini Rosso -- Duh! Why was everyone -- from host to servers, so surly? Ah, maybe because it takes too much energy to pretend to be what they are not? Please people, there are more elegant restaurants with better food in NYC.

A true culinary classic. Every course was perfect. Although everyhting was outstanding, the lagostines and orange, for desserts, are truly unique and shouldn't be omitted.

The food was great but unfortunately my partner and I did not have the amazing experience that we expected to have. We were the only people of color in the restaurant (visible staff included) and it quickly became apparent that we were being treated differently because of it. Mainly being seated at the most inconveniently placed table despite having reservations and despite other seating arrangements being available, and being consistently and intentionally bumped into while eating- overall not the best experience and definitely disheartening. We took pictures and tagged the restaurant in the photos and the restaurant intentionally chose to share the photos that omitted us in them, but shared everything else. Additionally- they did not require that we showed our vaccination cards, and yet sat all of their patrons on top of each other with no social distancing.
